Holiday Golf Club is a championship course that features challenging greens that were designed to test golfers with even the sharpest short game skills. The fairways are generously sized but they are also bordered by lakes and white sand bunkers fiercely guard the elevated greens. Players should be prepared to use every club in their bag. The golf course is a challenge but it is also fair and enjoyable, which makes it a good test of skill without testing your frustration. Its playability, which is further enhanced with three sets of tees, has made it one of Florida's most popular tracks. Holiday Golf Club also boasts extensive practice facilities that include a par-3, nine-hole course, a lighted driving range, a chipping green, and an expansive putting green.

Nice course, nice layout, very nice greens...fast, true and they hold much better now compared to a few years ago when all the greens were redone.

We’ve played here many times, sometimes the play is slow because the marshals say nothing to players who don’t keep up with the group in front of them.

All in though, we enjoyed our round.

Aside from the unfriendly gentleman that ran the pro shop, the course and staff was fine. The gentleman simply told us to go and start whenever you like with giving us any assistance or details on cart selection, which nine hole course we should play, or information on restrictions, etc. He basically told us to go play.

The best thing about this course is the greens, fast and true. Watch out for the 12th, you approach from below the front and when you walk up to see your ball, don’t be surprised if you’re long as the green slopes front to back. If you’re to long you’re wet!

There’s plenty of traps, all with lots of sand and nicely groomed. There’s water too, on most holes it’s off to the side (sometimes hidden) so keep your eye on the ball if you stray from the fairway.

Nice course and friendly staff. They had a lot of rain the morning before we play, so it was cart path only. The course is laid out so you can’t play power golf on all holes. I found that I was playing most of the clubs in my bag.

I love playing this course. It is a great layout in excellent shape but was disappointed in the pace of play. I was playing in a threesome and the started had allowed two fivesomes to play ahead of us. After taking 2 1/2 hours to play the front 9 I finally saw a course marshal and asked if it was a common practice to allow 5 players to play together. He said it was on occasions but he didn't like it and said he would see if he could speed them up.

Also, do not use their online booking. It cost me $5 to use the service when if I had just called the course it would not have cost anything.

This course is typical Florida, close cropped and sandy. Greens are a bit diabolical but everything else is quite good. Good distance for us old duffers and long enough for big young hitters. Enough water to swallow a few balls, good sand in the traps. All-in-all a good round.
